I have just installed MediaPortal2 in Windows10. I was able to find my TV channels. The first time I started MP2 I was able to watch TV. But now I cannot access the TV button.

There is no way to scroll and there is no other button that lets me search. Below is my screen. Yes, I see the scroll bar on the right, but I can't get it to do anything. I'd love to try a different skin, but there is nothing that lets me try that option. (I've looked in "MediaPortal 2 TV Configuration")

What can I do?

    Hi.
    On the screenshot there is no focus on any of the menu tiles. So most likely another program has "stolen" the focus. And then MP2 did not react to remote. If you have a "green button" (the WMC button, not the one from teletext), you can press it and the focus should be back to MP2. Then you can scroll down!!!! to reach TV and settings menu entries.

    I assume that when you say "WMC" that you mean Windows Media Center. But I had upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 a few weeks ago, so Windows Media Center was removed. Otherwise, I don't know what you mean by "green button".

    Should I uninstall/reinstall MediaPortal2?

    He means the green button on your remote control, it has nothing to do with WMC software.
    Do you use mouse, remote or keyboard?

    If you have a remote or keyboard just press the down button many times, as the scroll bar on the right side indicates there is more. The focus should appear after pressing a few times.

    If you have a mouse, go over a button until it has focus, then scroll down to see more buttons.

    I never dealed in detail with this, because I needed just to connect my IRSS, install the driver and directly it worked out of the box with MP2. Maybe other users may confirm, what they did or you tell us which remote you have. There is also an input device manager within MP2 which you can try.

    MP1 MP2 MP2 DLNA status? DE
    What I meant is that we have a MP2 plugin called UPnP Render that can play media from DLNA servers if I remember correctly. I don't know the current state of the plugin though. That's why MP2 probably never will be certified. ;) Yes, that was also the idea, but it is a big job as all TV's, software etc. seems to not do everything...

    I have never used a Silicon Dust network tuner, but from reading elsewhere I have a recollection that in Silicon Dust's own configuration tool you need to select "MediaPortal" as the output destination (or something like that). So this might be worth checking (just in case I have remembered it correctly). -- from CyberSimian in the UK
